A drug dealer has been sent to jail for four years, after police raided his home and found thousands of pounds worth of drugs.

Anthony Luke Breen, 48, was found with cocaine, ecstasy tablets and ketamine at his home in Devonshire Place, Brighton.

He pleaded guilty to possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply, possession of Class B drugs and an offence under the proceeds of crime act at Hove Crown Court on Monday.

The court heard Breen admitted possessing controlled drugs with intent to supply after police went to his home address to arrest him on suspicion of stealing a pedal cycle from Brighton Marina on Thursday, March 8.

The estimated street value of the drugs involved was between £11,458 and £14,372.

While searching the address officers found and seized 100 grams of cocaine, 174 MDMA (ecstasy) tablets, 7 grams of ketamine, 3 grams of propylone and £3,080 in cash.

Her Honour Judge Christine Henson ordered that the drugs be destroyed and the cash forfeited.

Following the sentencing, detective constable Tom Duffy, of Brighton investigations, said: "Sussex Police is committed to disrupting the supply of drugs within Brighton and Hove. This sentence shows that anyone convicted of dealing drugs in the city can expect a lengthy jail term."
